NEW MUSIC: TOKiMONSTA – Stigmatizing Sex, Creature Dreams EP
by Winston "Stone" Ford
TOKiMONSTA – Stigmatizing Sex
Let’s face it, music production is a boys game.
It’s hard to even name the amount of popular female music producers of any genre on one hand. Even with the advent of computer-based production and the leveling of the playing field most producers are still male. On the flip of that however is LA’s TOKiMONSTA (aka Jennifer Lee), who has been making some of the best lo-fi beats for a minute now. She worries less about being a female in the game and more about just dropping dope music. Like fellow LA recording artist and mentor Flying Lotus her beats are atmospheric in nature, and the instrumentals almost put you in another mindstate.
Next month she releases her Creature Dreams EP on progressive label Brainfeeder and it’s already shaping up to be a beast, with the track Stigmatizing Sex already getting major spins her in the office.
